Subject: This wasn't OTR
This episode of The Real McCoys was the audio version of the televison series. A number of local radio stations have broadcast episodes of old "classic" television shows in the same manner of broadcasting old time radio and it's possible that this is where it came from. If you can remember the television series, it's easier to picture the show (no puns intended); otherwise you'll find there are some dead spots where the camera followed the action without the need for voices or sound effects. Still, it's an episode that transfers to audio only better than most television shows, and worth listening to. No rating only because it wasn't written or staged for radio.

Subject: Doesn't sound like a radio show
Real McCoys was a TV show, but why does the description say adapted for radio. This sounds like a soundtrack of the TV show. There are no opening or closing audio credits.
